Who am I ?

Has this question bothered you many times? Since eons, man has been trying to find a satisfactory answer to this question. Some people associate this question with the most straight forward solution of a name. Yes. Their own name. That is quite simple. The point to observe is that the name is something we get baptized mostly by our family. Do we really respond to a name when we are say 3 months old? As we grow up we associate ourselves with our name. And them it becomes a primary part of our ego. When people start calling our names, we actually feel good. We also to a lot of extent rationalize our name’s existence when others address us by the same.

But this is just the beginning, or the tip of the iceberg. Beyond that brain identification of name, lies a subtle identity of who we are. We are actually souls trapped within a body with brain. A spiritual being, if I may. Actually, we are all God’s children and part and parcel of the infinite spark. Thus, this makes us beings with infinite potential. We can dream of anything and make it come true. As Richard Bach says “You are not given a dream, without being given the power to make it come true.” Or as Aerosmith sings “Dream on. Dream on, till your dreams come true.”

The Ego identification of the name is very powerful. So powerful that it can drown all other emotions and beliefs that we may have. To override beliefs, the Ego really has to be strong. All thoughts are filtered by the Ego, before it reaches the subconscious. Hence we may not be seeing the reality as it is. The Ego is a master mind bender and can edit the gut feel thoughts also. The Ego works in the beta scale, while the mind can work on lower vibrations like delta,theta and alpha. The Ego is so strong that some of these mental states induce can also contain remnants of it. It just doesn’t disappear, because if it were to, we would be brain dead.

A world of opportunity exists in the realm of the divine and this can only be achieved by silencing the Ego. So how do we really bypass the Ego. There are many ways. One of them is Meditation. Another one is Holosync. And the list goes on. The idea is to put ourselves in a lower vibrational state, so that we can feel the power of the silence. It’s in the gap that God exists. 99.99% of the universe is made of space. Did you know that? And this space or the infinite silence is where we come from and to where we will go after our death. so don’t be identified by a simple name. We are all much more than that and are divine beings meant to enjoy bliss.

Forever …

Never lose your hope

No matter what your present looks like or no matter if your past has been traumatic, keep in mind that you have to be hopeful. Of a better tomorrow, a better world. Keep your hope high. Never give in to  those negative thoughts that haunt you everyday. They make you cynical. I know it’s very difficult to stay positive always. But try hard, one day you will make it. To the top. And there is no stopping you. The only thing that lies between you and your dream is the effort. So work hard and stay focussed. You will reach your destination soon.

You have to actually enjoy the journey, although you are focussed towards your goal. Keep your hopes high, and only think positive. The name of the game is to avoid distractions which put you in a negative spiral. Think of your positive moments. Every day you wake up, think of your greatest achievement and keep savouring it throughout the day. At the end of the day, consciously review what thoughts did you think in the day. How much of them are cornering on hope.

Hope is the light that guides us always. It eggs us on. The light at the end of the tunnel is what you should be viewing. There are many people who have faced challenges in life, but never gave up. Because they know that one day they will make it. Humour can be a very useful tool to put us in a good mood. Use it prudently. Another thing that can put us in a positive frame is walking. Along with nature. It helps us stay calm and focussed. Try whatever puts you in a good mood.

Once again, let me tell you –> Never give up.The lives of great men are examples that we can emulate. They were also made of the same stuff that we are. Hence, I don’t see a plausible reason why we can’t make it. Time is going forward. It never comes back. So bury your past, focus on the future and live in the present. Be happy always and make somebody smile everyday. Keep improving, and never ever give up the hope for your dream. It’s just at the end of the block.

Keep Walking …

The power of will

One thing that we definitely need in life is Focus. Imagine if we were to attend to all the thoughts that cross our mind, we would go crazy. Our focus determines our future path. If our focus is not clear, we need to take steps to reinstate it. Remember the good old saying “Focus on what you are good at”. That is a golden maxim. We are all born with so many talents, we just need to spend time on what we are good at. That itself will last a long time. Now what about things we are not good at ? We have to keep improving on them. But will we get sufficient time to focus on both. I don’t know. Maybe yes or maybe not.

In our lifetime, we worry about so many unnecessary things. The focus gets scattered if we do that. I cannot tell you what to focus on, except that if it’s good go for it. But what may seem good to you may not be the same for another person. So go by your gut feel. It’s right. You may tend to lose focus, if you simply let your mind decide everything. By that I mean your Ego. That too, the selfish Ego. Learn to listen to nature. You will soon discover the pleasantness that comes along with it, which helps us focus. Some people are able to focus better than others.

But in the end, we all require it. To succeed. What we focus upon becomes true. I mean it manifests. What we spend more time upon, is surely the thing that will blossom. You know the magnifying glass when held in sunlight, can burn a piece of paper. Now, that is cutting edge focus. If we are able to concentrate our focus to such an extent, it can prove to be beneficial for us. Focus has depth. In fact it is depth. The work that we do is a result of our focus on the subject. If we have really done our job with focus, it will turn out to be exceptional. Nothing short.

Focus brings confidence along with it. It also aids in better recall. Because what we focus on gets imprinted in our memories and hence we are able to recollect it better. Focus on what you need out of life, and then go get it. Another synonym for focus is concentration. The more, the better. Say goodbye to distractions. Focus on your work now. And soon you will realize that what seems to be an effort, will come naturally to you. And then you will be in the flow of things. Quite naturally. As focus becomes a habit for you, the truth will begin to emerge from the veil that seems to cover it.

To your success,
